First in the World Ball

This weekend, Dave and I attended the First in the World ball. Several people asked me why it was so early since the typical birthday ball madness doesn't start until late October to mid November.  My only answer is our operational tempo doesn't allow everybody to be present to celebrate their birthday.  The battalion decided that it would be great to make an opportunity for the Marines and their ladies (there are no women in this unit), to celebrate!!

This year was my second time going and it was amazing because I had lived there, I met people, I went with people I love and generally had a better time.  The dancing was fun too!  Oh and Olympia Flaherty who did our engagement photos was there doing the Ball official photos!


Happy Birthday, Marines (a little early)!!

Here are some lovely pics of us all dolled up.  You know you want to see them!



There was dancing to be had...

 

Hooray! Next year, I want to find a dress that isn't red!
